Why can't they set one up in GA? There are tons of fighters here. Have Brian Bowles host it alongside Todd Duffee (even though he moved to Vegas)

ABE FROMAN -  UFC TO HOST IN MOVIES THEATRES.

 That thread was linked to an earlier news story! This one is about the fighters hosting, which is a cool idea.

So is sneaking a beer into the theater :-)

 Sounds like they realized they were overcharging and they want to add an incentive for people to pay the price.

For $20 it should be in 3D on IMAX screens.

It would be cool if they showed it at drive-ins.
